Everybody likes to get fancy for the holidays, especially walruses! These bewhiskered fellows knit up in just a few hours for cute last-minute gifts and holiday decor. The pattern comes with instructions to knit a snowball-sized walrus, plus a Santa hat, a skullcap, and an ear-flap hat.

Techniques include knitting in the round on double-pointed needles, I-cord, and some mattress stitch.
